Tamil film director Lokesh Kanakaraj on Tuesday suffered a minor leg harm in an unprecedented rush of followers when he got here to a theatre right here as a part of the promotion of his current launch, the Vijay-starrer ‘Leo‘. The incident occurred at Aroma theatre right here round midday.
The director, who was supposed to deal with his followers at Ragam theatre in Thrissur and later at Kavitha theatre in Kochi, then cancelled his plans.
“He consulted a doctor at a hospital in Palakkad itself and later left for Coimbatore. He may stay there or might leave for Chennai for further treatment,” a supply near Kanakaraj informed PTI.
In the meantime, police mentioned they resorted to minor caning to manage the group.
Gokulam Motion pictures, which is distributing ‘Leo‘ in Kerala, mentioned that regardless of heavy safety being organized for the theatre promotion, there was an “unstoppable flow” of followers who got here to see the director.
“Thank you, Kerala, for your love… Overwhelmed, happy and grateful to see you all in Palakkad. Due to a small injury in the crowd, I couldn’t make it to the other two venues and the press meeting. I would certainly come back to meet you all in Kerala again soon. Till then continue enjoying #Leo with the same love,” Kanakaraj posted on social media platform X.
‘Leo‘ has been racking up report collections with houseful reveals since day one until now.
